Jermain Defoe is back in training at Tottenham today.

The forward has made a quicker than expected recovery from the hamstring injury he suffered this month and should be contention for the match away to Sunderland on Saturday.

“It was nothing major, I just pulled up in training,” Defoe said yesterday. “When I first did it, I thought it was bad. When I do get little knocks, I tend to recover really quickly. I was running the next day, which was good. I think I will train tomorrow and I’ll play next week definitely.”
